Officials with the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources announced that the recreational fishing season for Gray Triggerfish will close in Mississippi territorial waters at 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, August 16th.

They also announced that the recreational fishing season for Red Snapper will close in Mississippi this Friday, August 17th, at 11:59 p.m.

Preliminary estimates from the Tails ‘n Scales reporting system indicate the annual catch target for the private recreational fishery is projected to be reached by the weekend.

The MDMR has the authority to reopen the recreational Red Snapper fishery if finalized landings indicate additional harvest would remain within the quota allowed under the Federal Exempted Fishing Permit.
